PostSubject: NEW OFFICIAL ACTION MAN COMIC GETS ITS RELEASE DATE :)   Wed Jun 01, 2016 11:13 am

Im not sure if this was reported on over here but Action Man the comic is being released from IDW/HASBRO This month.

i managed to get my son/me a copy of the free 1st issue that was given away by forbidden planet and its ok really certainly not vintage but not too MAM either. It has a sort of sleek finish but very close to Max Steel i think.

Heres a review

A very important post, nice one Dan! Cool

It certainly looks very promising, I do like comics, me. The return of ROM? I love the sharp modernist artwork, excellent!...

This is the comic i mentioned about on here about 2 years ago - chat, i think, then something about a film a while later (link below). There were rumours back then of a new Action Man comic and film. It got me excited about a possible future release of a new wave of 12" Action Man figures, to tie in with the new comic and film, that's if the comic and film are successful, I do hope so. The only gripe I have with this new comic is: the old Action Man logo/title, it doesn't quite match in with the sharp modernist cover art, if you know what i mean. I think they should redesign the title text to be more modern and futuristic, a bit similar to the modern Action Man logo/text (1993 - 2006). I could do the new replacement design  Wink  

I hope this new comic heralds in a new era in the world of 12" Action Man figures, and not smaller sized figures similar to Mattel's latest Max Steel action figures (code named BIG JIM) Mattel also have a new Max Steel film on the way, or has it already been released?. I hope Hasbro do an Action Man film, that would be brilliant!  bounce

Interesting - let's hope it happens! Did anyone notice the logo on the news website is the original one, not the orange MAM logo? Could it really be an official 50th anniversary release?!

Yep, but I think it's just a generic Action Man logo, perhaps they never had the intended MAM logo at hand for their report?  They should have phoned me, i would have knocked them one out in half an hour (free of charge!) lol!

There's the mention in the report about a certain franchise making a return (Action Man?). All will be revealed next year hopefully bounce

There were slight rumours a couple of years ago about Action Man having a new enemy in the form of an invading army from space, plus new equipment to tackle the menace.
It sounds like sci-fi is still with MAM but going into hyperdrive, that's totally fine with me. Another rumour was of a new action packed Action Man film with live actors, that would be smart!  bounce
